Online Teacher Training.
Rogers, Paul; Coles, Trish
Developments in information technology have made online teacher training and development a practical proposition, but raise questions about the relationship between trainer and novice teacher at a distance. This case study of a pilot 10-week online course explores aspects of that relationship and considers future implications of this form of teacher training. This paper describes in detail an online teacher training certificate program offered at a British university for native and non-native English speakers anywhere in the world. Issues of course validity, assessment, suitability, and cultural sensitivity are examined. Wider issues concerning online teacher education are also considered. It is concluded that the technical and practical difficulties of face-to-face distance education are receding at a rapid rate. (Contains 17 references.) (KFT)
